First announced in early 2020, the new title will be the first in a four game series that will release over the coming four seasons. F1 Manager 2022 will be released on Xbox One, Series S|X and PlayStation 4 and 5 consoles as well as PC via Steam.
Formula 1 is to launch a management simulation game this summer as part of a new long-term multi-title agreement with Frontier Developments.
F1 Manager 2022 will enable players to take on the role of Team Principal of their own team.
Formula 1 has outlined that there will be “unparalleled authenticity and broadcast-quality presentation” as part of the game.
It is set to be released on various platforms, including PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and PC, with a launch date of this summer.
“It’s great to see F1 Manager 2022 take shape and for people to see this exciting title come to life,” said Formula 1 chief Ross Brawn.
“I know from personal experience that leading a team can be challenging, but it’s certainly rewarding.
“The F1 Manager franchise is a great opportunity for fans to put themselves in the shoes of a team principal and experience some of that for themselves.
“I am confident that with their own successful track record in management gaming, Frontier will deliver an enjoyable and engaging experience for fans.”
The developer is promising “unparalleled authenticity and broadcast-quality presentation” in F1 Manager 2022, and says players will need to management “every aspect” on their journey toward victory.
Between competitions, for instance, they’ll be required to upgrade their cars and facilities, hire drivers and engineers, as well as balance budgets and driver demands – while, come race day, they’ll need to “stay calm under pressure and make critical decisions.”
F1 Manager 2022 will launch this “summer” on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PS5, and PC, and is the first of four F1 games planned under Frontier’s new licensing deal.
As previously announced, three more F1 games will follow through to 2025, subject to the achievement of certain financial performance thresholds.
